Movie: Sylvester and the Magic Pebble

The movie rights to Sylvester and the Magic Pebble by William Steig have been acquired by Lions Gate Family Entertainment. They plan a CG animated feature called Sylvester.

Now what would be truly funny would be to use the character "Donkey" from the movie Shrek as Sylvester. Shrek is also by William Steig.

I have the nifty Sylvester doll that unzips to deploy the "rock" complete with magic pebble. It is so much fun to hear the "wow" when the donkey turns into a rock when I read the story aloud.

I just did a quick search online and I cannot find one for sale. I found my Sylvester at a library conference.
